For those who are πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ TIRED OF SELF-SABOTAGING!! πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

As emotionally sensitive people who may have BPD traits or borderline personality disorder, there are so many reasons why we might be prone to self-sabotaging behavior.  In this video, I talk about one of the reasons that many of us do it that people don’t talk about as much (but probably should!)

If we’re operating from this one powerful belief, it can affect the choices we make about how we treat ourselves and others and whether we move forward or stay stuck, continuously repeating those patterns that no longer serve us, while at the same time deeply wanting to break free from them.

I give a very personal example of how this belief impacted my life years ago to encourage you that, no matter where you are, you can build a life worth living — the life you want to live — one step and one day at a time.

Give the video a watch, and then pop a comment down below with your thoughts! 

In kindness,

    Thanks so much for this video Debbie! I was told in DBT that my core belief was "I'm not good enough" I self-sabotage by avoiding things that could be could for me but that I'm way too nervous to even think about doing. I'm doing a lot better lately at jumping in and doing things even though I'm scared because they could be very good for me in the future. I have support from the people at the local Peer Support Centre, who encourage me that I can do it. I felt so proud of myself lately when I answered a very important phone call. I can't wait to see what might come of it. Your videos are always so helpful and empowering. I can't wait for the next one.

    This video is really helpful! It’s nice to see that other people have been through something I’m going through. It’s actually quite rare to meet someone with bpd so I can find myself feeling quite alone and feel like people in my life cannot relate to the problems I have but this video has such relevance to me I feel a bit better. Self sabotage has been a major downside in my life and it’s hard put my finger on why I actually do it. I start dbt soon and hopefully I can begin to figure it out πŸ™‚
